Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I'm trying to set up my new LG DR389 dvd recorder. Its connected to a LG Plasma with an inbuilt digital tuner. Whilst trying to set up the recorder it says it can't find a digital set top box. The Recorder is connected to the tv via the red, white & Yellow cables, and the antenna is connected from the antenna to the dvd recorder, then to the tv.

Hi.

The red, white & Yellow cables (AV or RCA cables) are probably going from DVD RW Out to TV input. This will allow you to watch DVDs on TV, but will not allow you to get TV channels from TV built in receiver to DVD RW.

Using this configuration you will also be able to tune DVD RW channel only on the DVD built in tuner, and the DVD unit will not see the signal from TV.

To start if possible, I suggest to use a different connection for DVR out to TV. The red, white & Yellow cables do not allow High definition.
Use a different connection (possibly HDMI, at least component cables). Depending on the configuration you will need to connect DVR out to TV, and then to get TV out on DVR.

If this unit does not have HDMI leave analog output with RCA cable, connect the aerial cable directly to TV, and find a TV output to connect to an input connector on DVD back panel.

Here also the manual English (1,485K).

Can't read DVD+R that were recorded on LG-DR389 on my PC / Laptop DVD


The DVD+R is the older version that was used, all newer ones use the DVD-R now, your problem is the disc is not recognized in the other players because of the different format.

Is it possible to tune the channels of an integrated freeview digital box within a tv to a recordable dvd player


No!

However, i see what your trying to accomplish - being able to record the freeview pictures you recieve form the Sony inbuilt tuner onto the recorder.. whilst being able to watch a different channel..?!

Well, you cant. If your Recorder has an inbuilt digital tuner then of course this would solve your issues, whereas if it is purely an analouge recorder and your in an area that has switched over then youll need some new hardware unfortunatly,.

LG RH266 setup with freeview tv


Sorry to say no it wont not unless the Tv set manuel says it has a Duel Freeview feed , you have to get another freeview box for the recorder .
besides If you used the freview in the tv 1 , the tv would have to be on when you wanted to record ?. and 2 you couldnt watch another channel whilst recording another .. only 1 tuner ?. also you could only record the program you had on .at the time no timer facility .
People are still used to the Old system of VHs and the fact that all videos had tuners built in so you could watch and record .. It will come and indeed some more modern DVD recorder have freeview built in again sorry but thats the facts , and dont forget if you want the pay per view channels on free view your going to need a tuner with a pay card port ...
